DINING OUT Sometimes, it is disappointing to return to a favorite dining place to find a new owner and menu. This has happened at Taste of China. There are, however, a few changes that could bring this restaurant, hidden in the corner of the mini-mall, to its former popularity. The simple, attractive dining room is given visionary space by a mirrored wall. The glass topped booths and tables have fresh flowers and a real canary sings in the background.

Rep. Dana Rohrabacher doesn’t want a Chinese company to get another chance to sell security devices to the Port of Los Angeles. The Beijing-based Nuctech company originally had a contract to provide scanning units to screen incoming containers for dangerous cargo, but officials said the scanner didn’t meet performance standards and required a Nuctech technician to work properly. While the port is reviewing the company’s contract and will have a final decision by today, Rohrabacher said the company shouldn’t get another chance — and that no Chinese company should have been allowed into the running.

A former Boeing engineer in Huntington Beach was sentenced Monday to nearly 16 years in prison for stealing aerospace secrets for China. Dongfan “Greg” Chung, 79, of Orange, spied for the People’s Republic of China for more than three decades, passing information on restricted technology and trade secrets relating to the Space Shuttle program and Delta IV rocket, officials said. Chung, a naturalized citizen originally from China, was convicted after a three-week trial of six counts of economic espionage to benefit a foreign country, conspiracy to commit economic espionage, acting as an agent of the People’s Republic of China and making false statements to the FBI, according to the United States Attorney’s office.

Yousheng Cho was 5 when his father decided to take the boy from his home in Shanghai to the United States. His mother would have preferred her son stay with her in China, but his father was adamant Yousheng would benefit from an American education. It was that same education that brought Yoshi (as his friends nicknamed him after the Super Mario World character) back to China and a reunion with his mother. Yoshi is a Carden Academy student in Huntington Beach, and he was joined by more than 50 classmates, parents and teachers on the school’s week- and-a-half long trip to China.

Increasingly, over the last 20 years, Americans, especially business and government leaders, have sold body and soul to Asian leaders. Buoyed by low Asian prices and an unsatiated appetite for material things, American consumers are not far behind. The lure of a global market and record profits has been too much for American corporations. One by one, American business leaders have come to strike what have progressively become Faustian bargains with top Asian leaders. But the Chinese, especially, with their lures of money, deception, and even lurid sexual favors, have provided American business representatives short-term profits and their own creature comforts.

My worry for my fellow film lovers is that subtitles combined with a fear of anything that smacks of fiction or intellectualism might keep some from making the trek from Glendale to the Laemmle in Pasadena. That would be too bad, for "Balzac and the Little Chinese Seamstress" is a rare combination of a lavish motion picture simply told. Even rarer is that it is written and directed by Dai Sijie, the same talented storyteller who wrote the original novel.

As the advisor of Golden West College’s Model United Nations, Margot Bowlby knows about how the U.N. operates. While Huntington Beach High School prepared for a visit tonight from the authors of “They Poured Fire on Us from the Sky,” a memoir of three Lost Boys of Sudan, the Independent asked Bowlby, an assistant political science professor, for her thoughts on the crisis. It’s been seven years since the conflict erupted in Darfur, and the U.S. government has repeatedly labeled it a genocide.

In the summer of 2008, the 29th Olympic Games will open in Beijing. Taking advantage of worldwide attention brought about by the Olympics, China will no doubt try to show the world that it is now a modern political and economic superpower rivaling the United States and the countries of the European Union. China likes to talk about its incredible growth, rapid modernization and growing influence, but what it doesn’t like to talk about is its increasing contribution to worldwide pollution.
